Is Ketogenic Diet Good For Losing Weight ? We are often confused by the new trends and endless promotions of weight loss diet plans ?
What is Keto Diet?
The Keto diet is the most popular new diet trend prevailing today. It is low carb, high fat diet plan basically used as a therapeutic diet to treat specific medical conditions like diabetes ,epilepsy, alzheimers disease.
If we compare Keto diets with other diets like Paleo, South Beach diets , Dukan diets , Atkins all are high in protein but moderate in fat. In contrast , Ketogenic diet has a high fat content – 70% to 80%, though with only a moderate intake of protein because eating too much of protein can prevent ketosis. The amino acids in protein can be converted to glucose and hence used as a source of energy .
The principle of the keto diet for weight loss is to deprive the body of glucose -the main source of energy for all cells in the body , the body begins to use fat as its primary fuel. The liver produces ketone bodies from fat , which is used in the absence of glucose. When these ketone bodies accumulate in the blood , this is called ketosis.
Healthy individuals will produce insulin to prevent excessive ketones from forming,however, the number of ketone bodies that are form are variable from person to person.
Lets check carb rich foods – which are banned : starches -refined – whole grains ,breads , pasta, rice,cookies,potatoes ,corn , vegetables , fruits, juices,etc
Fat rich foods allowed are : meat, butter, cheese, nuts,avocado,seeds, ghee, fish,plant oils
Keto diets can be followed for weightloss for a very short duration under expert guidance , if followed for long term will have metabolic disturbances in the body. Transition from a high carb diet to a low carb diet should be gradually .
Lets be more creative in making your salad colorful,tasty,crunchy,balanced,appealing and healthy. Yes,its time to change from the only known traditionally raw salads cut into slices and sprinkled with lemon and salt to the creative mouthwatering salads !!!
Starting your meal with a bowl of healthy salads helps your body to absorb more nutrients and gives more satiety value ,which aids in weight loss too.People who donot like to eat veggies can mix them with fruits also to make it more appealing and delicious.This will give you more antioxidants which will protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
You can use lots of raw or steamed veggies in your salad bowl.Add more herbs like oregano,rosemary,peppers ,vinegar or apple cider vinegar, etc to make it taste better. Instead of using cheese /creams use hung curd or salsa or barbeque sauce to add more palatability.
Your leafy greens and raw veggies are a superb source of natural fiber and consuming enough fiber each day has several health advantages.Fiber helps to reduce bad cholesterol , excess sugars in the blood.It helps in weight loss and healthy weight maintenance too.People who eat enough fibre may have a lower risk of developing cancers too. Fibre helps to prevent constipation too.

Are you one of those,who have sugar cravings especially after a meal ? Sugar cravings that strike after a meal may be due to Serotonin, a feel good brain chemical thats associated with an elevated mood. Eating a sugary desert causes serotonin levels to rise in the brain , which can make you feel calmer and happier.
Sometimes , ending our meals with something sweet is a habit also. Other reason can be when we are on a strict diet and deprived of sweets , then we feel like breaking a the diet and look for something sweet.
It happens you have just finished a big hearty meal , but instead of feeling full and satisfied , you crave for something extra.It’s not pulses or vegetables that you yearn for-It’s SWEETS.
How to deal with sugar cravings after a meal ?
Don’t cut down on sugars completely ,craving sugars after a meal is natural. It’s best to eat low calorie healthy sugars after your meal like chew some sauf , fruit or fruit yogurt, little dark chocolate , dried figs or prunes , dried cranberries, jaggery etc.Otherwise ,if you don’t want to eat anything at all then indulge in some work so that the craving goes out of your mind.

The sugar craving is mostly due to psychological reason than physiological.The desire occurs out of a habit of eating you meal with sweets.
